This is the 5th time my husband & I have stayed at Swanston & again would highly recommend these cottages as comfortable, clean & close to all the Edinburgh attractions. The Brasserie always serves good, reasonably priced food & the office staff are friendly & welcoming. Would always stay here in future when visiting our family who live nearby.

We stayed at Swanston in July and although the location is very convenient for Edinburgh, we won't be staying again. The cleanliness of the kitchen and upstairs bathroom were appalling, the fake fireplace was not working and the pillows were very thin and yellow with no protectors. Unfortunately I didn't have time to inform the office of any of this... More

Cottage was well presented with all mod cons. Very relaxing setting right on the Base of the pentlands. With... More

Really comfortable, clean and cosy accommodation. Ideally situated a few miles out of the city with lovely walks on the doorstep. Great hosts, we were treated with wine, chocolate, and shortbread on our arrival. Restaurant on site was great, all round a perfect place to get away. Thanks

Our family stayed at Swanston for 3 months - we had sold our house and were waiting for entry to our new home. It was clean, comfortable and very convenient. The staff were fantastic and always on hand to help. The golf and the brasserie were an added bonus to our stay. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We were looking for a nice rented home for 3 months and came across Swanston Cottages. Well run and organised superbly. Well equipped. Excellent if you have a dog. Good walking on the doorstep. We had coffee and supper in Clubhouse. Superb value and views. Ideal for holidaying in Edinburgh

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Swanston Cottages. 10 of us had 2 cottages for golf. Both were roomy for what we required, all the usuals, microwave, cooker, fridge etc. The sofa bed I used in Cottage 5 was very comfy.

This was our third stay at Swanston Cottages to visit our family who live nearby. As in the previous stays everything was clean, comfortable & convenient. The staff were professional, obliging & very friendly. We had three meals in the golf club & all were great & good value. We look forward to another stay.
